The rapid advances in scientific knowledge over the last years have been boosting our techniques and practices daily, resulting in the ongoing improvement of the level and effectiveness of the services we offer to our patients.
Nowadays, a modern assisted reproduction unit must constantly adapt to changes and advancements, while continuing to operate and safely offering its valuable services to its patients.
In this unique environment, systematic education and effective management of change seem to turn into the main components for the operation of a modern and successful assisted reproduction unit.
Since 2013, the Embryolab Academy, true to its founding values, has been organizing educational seminars for all modern assisted reproduction lab techniques.
Our mission is to educate the scientists in this field, promote the science of assisted reproduction, offer training in the new lab techniques and introduce them to the labs worldwide.
Our Academy continued its mission in the last 2 years, despite the adverse conditions imposed by the pandemic. It participated in online seminars held by renowned organisations in Greece and
In April 2021 it had the honour of hosting its own global online virtual event on: Safe Practices in Assisted Reproduction. The seminar was very well received, with 1,081 people registering for the event from 80 countries around the world! The comments we received were full of praise, both for the content and for the ground-breaking hosting of the event.
In October 2021, supported by pharmaceutical giant Merck, it held a two-day training seminar on: Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Practices. The event was addressed to our African colleagues, who were seeking ways to train on new techniques, such as preimplantation genetic diagnosis, so as to introduce them to their countries and labs, and offer more to their patients!
Our Academy has been treading this planet for 8 years, bringing together scientists from every corner of the globe, and promoting training and education that advance assisted reproduction practices through our internationally recognised work.
